SYNOPSIS

A stunning documentary centred around bear activist Timothy Treadwell, who spent 13 summers living in an Alaskan national park in order to spend time with the grizzly bears that resided there. In his stays, he recorded hundreds of hours of footage of the bears and himself, before he and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard were eventually mauled to death in 2003. With Grizzly Man, Werner Herzog fashions together a portrait of Treadwell as an obsessive man whose faith in both himself and the animals he loved was his ultimate downfall. He mixes both Treadwell's own footage with new interviews and information, weaving a devastating, compelling narrative that has empathy for its subject but never deigns to indulge in hollow tribute.
